The desert calls. Return to the world of Dune before watching one of the most exciting sequels of the year. Dune returns exclusively to IMAX starting February 7. This is your chance to experience Denis Villeneuve’s first Dune film the way it was meant to be seen. This special experience also includes a sneak peek at Dune: Part Two.
From Academy Award nominated-director Denis Villeneuve comes Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Dune, the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller of the same name.
A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet), a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
Dune was originally released in 2021 to critical and audience acclaim. The film received several nominations at the 94th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and won Best Original Score, Best Sound, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and Best Visual Effects.
The Guardian praised the film, saying, “Dune reminds us what a Hollywood blockbuster can be.” Empire gave Dune five out of five stars, lauding the actors’ performances, particularly Timothee Chalamet’s: “Among the uniformly excellent performances, Timothée Chalamet holds his own in his first blockbuster leading role. In a film this size, there’s every chance he’d get swallowed up by the sandworm-like enormity of everything around him–but even against the colossal spectacle, the magnetic charisma he displayed in smaller indie fare shines through.” On Rotten Tomatoes, Dune earned a certified fresh audience rating of 90%.
On top of such accolades, Dune also boasts a successful box office run, taking in USD 402 million globally.
Continue the journey as Dune: Part Two opens in Philippine cinemas on February 28.
